We are currently working across Government to decide what would be appropriate for other parts of the public sector to sign up to, given the variety of organisations involved. Regardless of this, we encourage all organisations to adopt a supportive environment for their employees who are Armed Forces reservists, and to encourage others to join.</p> more like this

unstar this property answer text <p>Mr Juncker's statement was not approved by the EU Member States. The UK remains firmly opposed to centralised EU command or control over military forces, which remains a Member State competence, and has successfully kept the EU focused on strengthening its co-operation with NATO which holds primacy in defence matters.</p><p>The Prime Minister made this clear at the December 2013 European Council where strengthened EU-NATO partnership was agreed to be one of the key deliverables. It will be raised again as a fundamental agenda item at the June 2015 European Council where EU Member States will look for ways to further enhance collaboration between the two institutions.</p><p>The Government ' s views on this matter have been consistent and transparent and any attempt to form an 'EU army' would be blocked by the UK. We will continue to emphasise our views to partners and will remain vigilant on the issue.</p> more like this
